Fun read, if not always well written. ( )

Any book that references Doctor Who and Princess Bride is alright by me. :) Fun book just like all the others in the series. ( )

Atticus fakes his death to fool the Norse gods with the help of Coyote. Then he has to help Coyote with his plan to help the Dine. Coyote has tricked Atticus in also getting rid of a couple of skinwalkers, but he's not the only one who tricks Atticus. So does Leif.

Looking forward to the next book! ( )

Woah Boy this was a difficult book for Atticus-
Ah Atticus, he romped through Navajoland, fought with native mythical beasties, lost some, gained some, was betrayed, found himself feeling lusty, and almost loses his greatest love. Phew, and thats just the beginning. Atticus is presumed dead, The Gods think he was killed after the battle that left many including Thor dead. This gives him the opportunity to start over, with Granuaile his apprentice. Coyote has a deal for them, one that would give them great access to a new location with freedom to train. Plus it's only to benefit the locals who have lost so much. Everything with Coyote is not always clear and easy. Atticus meets head on some Navajo gods and they are not so happy to see him. His trust and his life are in danger.
I really enjoyed this latest adventure. I love Coyote's character and he is all over this book. He is just the little trickster I know and love. He is one hard one to figure out. I like that he is not a done deal, many secrets still are hidden on him. There was some strong hints at a possible romance. Yipeee.
We get a lot of background on Atticus's former loves and his past. This was thrilling, he has been around a long time. Oberon, sniff, sniff. Just pick up and extra sausage for the world best hound.
You do need to read the series in order to get the full understanding of the characters. ( )

Book description
Druid Atticus O’Sullivan hasn’t stayed alive for more than two millennia without a fair bit of Celtic cunning. So when vengeful thunder gods come Norse by Southwest looking for payback, Atticus, with a little help from the Navajo trickster god Coyote, lets them think that they’ve chopped up his body in the Arizona desert.

But the mischievous Coyote is not above a little sleight of paw, and Atticus soon finds that he’s been duped into battling bloodthirsty desert shape-shifters called skinwalkers. Just when the Druid thinks he’s got a handle on all the duplicity, betrayal comes from an unlikely source. If Atticus survives this time, he vows he won’t be fooled again. Famous last words.
